brownstein writes with one key voting block noncollege educated white women. or as brown stein refers to them as waitress moms. through a targeted and sustained appeal to working women on display in obama ads like this one the incumbent has been particularly effective and brown stein's piece he writes democrats say blue collar women have been the principle and most receptive target for their extended ad barrage portraying romney as plutocrat. on airing these on dr. phil and judge judy the strategy seems to be paying off lifting obama's numbers among a group that tilts republicans in swing states that will be a key to victory in november. ask you about this, this late stage i call it a late -- i don't know what i called it a last stage gaps when going into the commercial break, but we've -- this has been something we've seen in the numbers for a while now, romney has a problem among latinos and women and in particular, you know, the latino demographics, 70/20 are terrible numbers. bill clinton got the highest percentage of the hispanic vote in '96, 72%. looks like the president is on track to

times, whatever it is. last night in massachusetts, senator brown and elizabeth warren. they both said something goofy. viseen that or heard that a billion times. that's regrettably, the unfortunate part. but the viewers get tow watch the whole thing. >> i think if the viewer tunes in, it is a chance to see both people side by side. the great danger for an incumbent president is, if the challenger comes off as being competent in that setting, all of a sudden, the challenger's elevated to being equal of the incumbent. i think incumbent presidents have more at risk than do the challengers. >> greta: is it smart to engage your opponent, or do you just deal with the moderator? do you turn to the opponent and say, look, challenge that one? >> i think you are better off to talk straight to the american people. not even talking to the moderator, talking to the american people. one of the most famous lines, back to your point, about clever lines was ronald reagan saying, i am not going to let my opponent's youth and inexperience count against him. everybody broke up laughing because he had tak

of illegals in the country are living in california. so was this a good call by jerry brown? let's ask john fund. obviously this is part of president obama's new law which allows those under 16 who meet a number of criteria who came here under 16, i should say, to enjoy some of the benefits of citizenship and work. so say this is the safest way to go for those people to allow them to get a driver's license. >> let's thank governor brown for one small favor. there is one worse bill he did veto which would have prohibited state authorities from cooperating with the federal authorities in deporting someone. i think president obama's original action will go through the courts and long before any states should act on it we should see if it's viewed as constitutional. martha: you are saying wait until it goes through the courts then proceed with this. >> what happens if the court say obama overstepped his authority? will we take back the driver's licenses? this is why we need voter i.d. at the polls. real voter i.d. at the polls that's just for citizens. once you have a driver's license everyone

that looks brown out here is a state where they were losing jobs at the time. some of them very badly. look at ohio over here. 10.6% unemployment. gradually over the next few years we saw jobs come on and education and in health care and in business services and retail. and now look where we are today. every state that is lighter in color is where there are either no longer losing jobs or in most cases gaining jobs. ohio, 7.2% unemployment now. that is better than the national average. the bureau of labor statistics says to make that happen we had to create a lot of jobs. how many? by their count, 4.4 million so far. but here's what's not mentioned much, 4.3 million were lost during the bad days. so the net gain is only about 125,000 jobs. that falls short of the president's claim he created five million jobs. it's just a little bit too much of a stretch. we have to call that claim false. even though many democrats will say in a heartbeat, look, he inherited a bad economy from george bush. many voters agree with that, nonetheless, the numbers don't add up. what about mitt romney's claim abo
